Abstract Wild turkeys (Meleagris gallopavo) occur intermittently throughout Trans-Pecos, Texas. In the lower desert of the Trans-Pecos, turkeys are associated strongly with the limited riparian habitat where roosting habitat is found. We initiated a study to document microhabitat characteristics of roost sites in the Trans-Pecos region of Texas. We measured microhabitat characteristics (canopy cover, density of stand, visual obstruction, understory herbaceous cover, height of tree, diameter at… Expand
